Kitchen appliance bundles typically include a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. Usually purchased for new kitchen builds or renovations, bundles offer a savings instead of buying each appliance individually. Because the units are matching, bundles give the kitchen a more finished look.
The monetary advantage of bundles sometimes makes it possible to upgrade appliance choices. Instead of having a kitchen full of budget models, a bundle allows a homeowner to invest in stainless steel appliances, or the latest energy-efficient refrigerator with that handy ice maker. The appliance upgrades also increase home value, making it an easier to negotiate a higher selling price if the property goes on the market.
Customers aren't usually limited to set items in a bundle. For example, if a client preferred a gas stove instead of an electric model, that option can be changed. A specific refrigerator may be needed to fit into a framed-in space. A client may want a counter-top microwave instead of the built-in model.
Competition between stores and brands is fierce. Customers may find delivery included in the bundle price. Appliance installation is sometimes included or provided at a reduced rate. Another benefit is the ease in keeping track of warranty information because everything was purchased on the same date.
